the dangerous sims mobile

*you hear a repetitive tapping motion, and enthusiastic gibberish words. you stare at a door, wondering what is behind it, as it hasn’t been opened in many hours…*

hey hey!

i’m going to talk about some games, but if you don’t like them, stay tuned for talk about music. thanks for reading!

so, i haven’t been super productive recently besides wishing for the arrival of summer, since this school year is very close to finishing. i’m especially thrilled, because later this year will be my first year of high school.

all this free time (i say this having a project due in 3 days that i haven’t started) has left me pondering around with games, since i didn’t really have any of them on my phone that i committed to. they were only small pastimes, like “hopscotch”, “splix.io” (which never works??), and “stack”. they aren’t super exciting and i use them to ease boredom.

one of my friends had this game called “The Sims Mobile” on her ipad. i had spent most of my time playing “five night’s a freddy’s” (oof so 2014) on another friend’s ipad, but was far too lazy to buy the game for myself. therefore, i decided to try the sims on my phone. after all, it was free, and i always wanted to play a sims game.

i can’t decide if it was a huge mistake or a huge blessing.

the weekend i downloaded it, it was all i did. i mean, besides eat and drink and practice some violin, i was on my phone using up all my sims’ energy which caused me to get frustrated because i couldn’t play the game the entire time.

(questionnaire: what’s your favorite game to play? comment below if you want.)

i don’t know about you, but i really like this game. i have always liked the concept of the sims, with going to work, building a house and such, although obviously it is very unrealistic. this version of the game does not offer anywhere near as much as the modern computer versions. i can’t be specific because i have never played it anywhere else, however i can say that there are definitely less hobby and career options, as well as furniture. you also can’t build a second floor to your house, which i hope they update soon.

a more important note to add would be that your sim does not have any needs or emotions, which is a bummer. your sim doesn’t have to eat, go to the bathroom, or sleep. any of those things are completely voluntary.

besides all of those cons, i still think it is very entertaining and am contemplating getting the real game. admittedly, it takes up most of my time, but i refuse to say i am addicted.

/ cool songs /

 nightclub love – matt maltese 

i really like this song. the vibe is very nightclub-by, hence the name. it’s a very pretty slow song, and the way he sung it is hypnotic. there is something old sounding about his voice, which i don’t really know how to describe really. i suppose it’s kind of 20s style, but with much better audio.

robbers – the 1975 

i’m honestly down to anything of the 1975 right now, which is funny considering i didn’t like them a while ago. they are all bops. songs like this make me want to sit in the dark in my bedroom in the early hours of the morning. due to increased activity of their instagram, i am very excited for a possible new album release.

cut your bangs – girlpool 

this song is very calming, but does make me sad. nonetheless, a good song.

new releases

panic! at the disco released a couple new singles and so did ariana grande which is pretty cool, not to mention matt maltese’s stuff is new (and awesome) too. it’s been a really good year for music so far, but i’m still bitter about the fact that one of my favorite singers (if not my favorite??? dodie i’m looking at you hon) is coming to my city and tickets sold out too fast for me to get. oh well.

that’s all i have for today, folks.

i hope you enjoyed this post! if you have anything you want to see from me, drop a comment, because i don’t have much to post about these days. if you made it all the way down here, thank you!

au revoir ~

Free Lunch #61 (Nintendo Switch Edition!)

Hello there you congratulatory glass shards. Today is Tuesday, which means it’s time for another Free Lunch! If you don’t know what Free Lunch is, I just get on either my laptop or phone and try to type for five minutes without stopping. I’m on my laptop today so the post will be slightly longer than usual. I’m a tad late, but that’s only because I’ve been playing video games all day!

Starting at 9:44.

As you may have deduced already, I got a Nintendo Switch yesterday! I had previously received Mario Kart and Super Mario Odyssey (thanks again!), so I was able to get a headstart on collecting all the Power Moons. At the time of writing, I have about 70 collected in my co-op game with Saoirse, and Brendan has about 40. I’m going to try and get every Power Moon and make it to the Darker Side of the Moon in Super Mario Odyssey. I ordered the new Legend of Zelda game, Breath of the Wild on Amazon, and it should arrive from December 28th to January 3rd. I head back to school on the 3rd, so I’m really hoping that it gets here sooner rather than later so I can have some time to really check out the game. I think I’ve really gotten some inspiration from all these great video game songs, so be on the lookout for a new song in the near future!

I also got this really cool light-up potion from my uncle on Christmas Eve!

I’m out of time, so thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post!

Having Lived (from To The Moon)

Hello there you minions boi’s!

Today, the sequel to one of my favorite games “To The Moon” came out, so in celebration, I decided to record a piano cover of one of my favorite songs from it. I’ve already bought the next game, I hope it’s just as good!

Here’s the song:

Free Lunch

Free Lunch #57

Hello there you moving castles. Today is Friday, and that means it’s time for another Free Lunch! If you don’t know what a Free Lunch is, I just get on either my laptop or phone and type for five minutes without stopping about my life and related subjects.

Starting at 10:19.

How was your Thanksgiving? Mine went pretty well; I had all the usual Thanksgiving foods, as well as a really good desert thing that my mom, brother, and sister made. I’m sorry for everyone reading that isn’t an American for two posts out of the last three that have relatable American things ssc. (Thanksgiving and  Saving Net Neutrality).

Recently I’ve really been trying to finish Having Lived, and as of now I only have a few more measures to memorize, and then I’ll be set. It was recently announced that the sequel to the original game, Finding Paradise, will be coming out December 14th. So I’ll try to release the song on that date!

I don’t really have any other news right now, other than that there won’t be a book review this week due to lots of schoolwork. Most of it isn’t even the schoolwork’s fault, just me managing my time poorly and not allocating time to read the book I chose. The review will definitely be out next Saturday though, so you can look forward to that! I also had this idea of making a seasonal series. I could make some kind of post that I only make in a certain season. That way I could have some crazy time to prepare each post to make it perfect. If you guys have any suggestions for series that might take a long time to produce, leave them in the comments below! Any ideas at all are greatly appreciated!

My time is up, so thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post! If you will; fill out this short survey?

I’ll see you next Tuesday for Free Lunch #58!

Undertale No Food #5

Hello there you shameless self-promos! It’s time for a very special post, another Undertale No Food. These only come out every couple months, take a lot of work to write, and are received relatively averagely, so I hope someone out there still likes these. If you want to actually understand the story and what’s happened up to this point, I encourage you to read these posts as well.

Undertale No Food #1

Undertale No Food #2

Undertale No Food #3

Undertale No Food #4

Today I’ll be trekking through most of Waterfall on my adventure to escape the Underground!

Starting off where I last saved, I talk to Sans and he invites me to go to Grillby’s. I oblige and find myself in a zoomed-in conversation with him.

I agree and trek back to Waterfall. I walked through multiple rooms and came across a hidden camera in a waterfall (not the area, actual waterfalls).

I keep walking and find myself in a room with lots of space to hide in. It also looks pretty cool.

Halfway through, I stop though because, above me, Papyrus is having a one-sided conversation with someone in lots of armor.

Once both of them have left, I continue through the bushes and am confronted by Monster Kid, an avid fan of Undyne (the armored figure). I forgot to take a screenshot of this, sorry.

In the next room, there’s a puzzle with lilypads that’s pretty interesting.

On my way out, I encounter Aaron!

I dodge most of his attacks and spare him.

In the next room, I find myself with a more interesting application of the lilypad puzzle.

After making my way across the bridge, I get a call from Papyrus about a tutu I picked up earlier.

After that odd phone call, I walk into the next room and read all of this lore.

I walk into the next room, with my shadow dripping onto the floor.

All of a sudden, FWOOSH!

Undyne is back, and this time I don’t have a bush to hide in!

So I walk as fast as the game lets me…

Sustaining minimum damage, I make it into a room of weird bushes for me to hide in. But Undyne follows me anyways!

Luckily she picks up Monster Kid (pictured above) instead of me, and I live.

Both I and Monster Kid walk out of the bushes.

As I enter the next room, Monster Kid doesn’t follow me.

*a few moments later*

Continuing through the caverns, I get another call from Papyrus.

He hung up, and I decided I wouldn’t change my clothes. In the next room, I found one more lore sign.

In the next room, I encounter a friendly octopus who doesn’t have enough water to live comfortably.

They talk for a little bit about how all of their friends moved to an aquarium in a big city because the water where they all used to live is draining.

In the next room, I find, surprise, more lore signs.

Continuing on my way, I find a little statue that’s getting rained on and give it an umbrella.

It starts to hum out a tune, and on a piano in the other room, I play the song and a door opens in the wall.

I try to take the artifact, but my inventory is suddenly mysteriously filled with dogs.

I try to “use” one of the dogs, but it absorbs the artifact and flies away.

I keep walking on the main path and take this pretty cool shot.

A few seconds of walking more, and I stumble into Monster Kid again.

He starts to follow me.

A few seconds of silence pass.

We keep walking and find a really nice view of the castle in the next room.

We soon encounter a ledge that’s too high for either of us to make it on our own, so he volunteers to let me use his shoulders.

I keep going like he said and…

SUDDENLY, MORE LORE.

In the next room, I used the savepoint and called it a day.

Free Lunch #48 (more more edition)

Hello there you awesome smelling pizzahaired chaps! (Hello there you submitted by faraztunezhaidr.) It’s Friday which means it’s time for another Free Lunch! If you don’t know what that means, I just type for 5 minutes on either my phone or laptop. This time it’s my phone, so this will be pretty short.

Starting at 10:31.

Not much has happened since Wednesday. Luckily I managed to finish all of the school work that was due on Thursday, and as of now, all of my grades are a-ok. I haven’t been working much on composing lately, but I hope to turn that around soon. Tomorrow i’m going downtown with my family and we’re going to eat pizza and walk around. On Sunday i’m going to my friend’s second birthday party. The first was last week, and we went a bunch of cool places (bowling, arcade, escape room). This time we’re just going to go to his house and eat cake and play video games probably.

Also, the next Undertale Free Lunch will be out within the next few weeks. Probably. If it isn’t then remind me if you actually want it.

I also want to take a moment to address all the inactive authors. I don’t know if anyone but me is ever going to post again. Jamie says he has nothing to say. No word from Maz or Jordan, and Victoria is still doing her treatment I think. I’m not sure if this is going to change anytime soon.

That’s the end of this Free Lunch.

Thanks for reading it.

Baiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Free Lunch

Free Lunch #45

Hello there you annoying little brothers, how are you doing today? Today is a Tuesday, which means that it’s time for another edition of your favorite series, Free Lunch! If you don’t know what Free Lunch is, I just get either my laptop or phone on Tuesdays and Fridays and type for 5 minutes without stopping sensibly.

Starting at 8:12.

The last couple days have been a sort of weird mix of hectic and laid back. My mom tore a ligament in her foot and had to go to the emergency room yesterday morning, so my siblings and I didn’t go to school yesterday. She got a weird foot cast thingy though, so it’s on the way to recovery! In other news, i’m almost finished with the two paired songs, Unfinished Piano Song #1 and Unfinished Piano Song #2. These will probably be out this Winter. I’m confident that I can compose enough Piano to resemble an album or LP. If not, then it will just come out later.

In other news, it’s possible we’ll be losing an author soon. I’m not sure if i’m allowed to share details, so i’ll let them post it if they want to. They might want to continue anyways though, so i’m not so sure.

In other other news, Brendan would like to tell you that he got a new god Beyblade Burst.  Congratulations Brendan!

I don’t really have much else to say so i’ll just fill up time with this pointlessly long sentence which you can’t hope to pay attention to. Were you paying attention? That sentence was actually a coded message, and I bet you can’t figure it out! If you do, contact me in the comments!

Brendan would like to tell you that the Beyblade he got is Kreis Satan. Congratulations Brendan!
Let’s also take a moment to be excited that To The Moon’s sequel game should be coming out very soon! I’m extremely ready for this, as there has been a few year break between the games.

My time is up for now, thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post!

Free Lunch #35

Hello there you emboldened signals of distress. Today is Tuesday, so that means it’s time for another Free Lunch. If you don’t know what that is, basically I just get a device and type for 5 minutes, trying not to stop. I’m typing on a computer that isn’t mine now, so i’ll have to edit in the pictures on my phone afterwards. This doesn’t really effect you at all, so I don’t know why I shared it.

Starting at 6:49.

Earlier this morning, and then well into the afternoon, I went on a Pokemon Adventure with Jamie throughout the city. It was fun, I got a ton of XP, ate some Wendy’s, which I haven’t had in a long time, and caught a Moltres!

Now would also be a good time to mention that on the day I was leaving Oak Ridge I was able to nab this Lugia!

This means that I currently have all of the Legendary Birds released in Pokemon Go so far, and Zapados shouldn’t be too difficult to catch.

In other news, that WordPress Album project seems to interest a lot of people, so I think it might actually happen! What started as a stray idea has now grown to a half stray idea.

In other, other news, in Clash of Clans we were generally doing well, but then we’ve lost two wars in a row. Luckily, our match now seems pretty easy, so we will probably be able to take them out easily.

In other, other, other news, on Piano, i’m learning a song from one of my favorite video games, To The Moon. The song is Having Lived, and you can listen to it here. I will probably make a video on my YouTube channel and feature it here once I can play the whole song to perfection. It’s one of my favorite piano songs right now 😀

That’s going to be all for today, as my time is up. This is a pretty lengthy post compared to how long the regular Free Lunch is, so I hope I maintained readership all the way to the bottom.

Shamelessly fighting in the view of the wars

A list of all the things I love:

 

Disney, in particular Disney Channel

Nintendo, always wearing flannel

Poems and Science

Beauty, not lice!

And also most definitely reading and WordPress

Music, but I digress

Whats most important to me

Is just blogging, can’t you see?

And although this isn’t up to my creative standard

I lost my library card (specifically the lanyard)

I can pull views

With this cheap ruse

So forgive me, the next real post is Monday

I hope you enjoyed my last real post, right here you can find it

So goodbye and now I have realized, I stole Riley’s idea right under his eyes.

So as I am legally required to disclose:

Sorry!

Pokemon Go – New Pokemon + Achievements 

Hello there you killer kiosks. It’s time for another Pokemon Go post! 

Last time on Pokemon!

Riley shows new Pokemon and is then boring for the rest of the post!

And now, a quick summary of what’s to come in this post!

Riley shows new Pokemon and is then boring for the rest of the post!

Just like the real Pokemon show, all my Pokemon posts are boring and repetitive lol.

But now for real!

Since last time, I leveled up to 26.

Got the achievement for catching 2,000 Pokemon overall!

Got like 1 new Pokemon.

And got a medal for doing a little bit with the new gym system.

Here is my character dude right now, who looks pretty generic.

That’s all I have for you this time, so make sure to check back in like a week for another Pokemon post!
